    Waffle is of average size for a boy his age - he stands at around five foot four - and is generally average in looks as well. He has brown hair, blue eyes, and his face is dusted with light freckles and small moles. His clothes speak to his class in that they look expensive before he gets his hands on them. The Muggle fashion he sports is often in some state of disarray, playing host to mysterious stains and other damage acquired through mischief. He is left handed.
    1872| Waffle is born in April. Being an infant, he is blissfully unaware of just how absurd his name is. He is his parents' third child. 
    1873| His sister, Candy Cane, is born. He's still too young to realize how unfortunate unique their names are.  
    1876| One morning while eating breakfast, the nature of his name finally dawns on him. He is distraught for a time, and then demands to be called 'Walter' instead. 
    1877| Following the fervor surrounding muggles and magic, the Witledges move to Hogsmeade. Waffle is unhappy about the move and beings acting out to express his frustrations and get attention. Eventually, he finds that throwing wrenches in other people's gears is actually fun. A little monster is born (storm and tempest, lightning strikes, 'It's alive,' is heard faintly in the distance). 
    1879| Waffle shows his first signs of magic when he turns some pebbles into spiders while they're in the hand of a boy he doesn't like. Zoinks. 
    1881| Waffle's older sister and cousins start leaving for Hogwarts and he becomes wildly jealous of them. He wants to play with magic, too!
    1882| Gingerbread goes off to school as well, leaving Waffle in the company of his little sister and remaining cousins. 
    1883-84| Now eleven years old, Waffle is finally old enough to attend Hogwarts! He plans on going by Walter at school to avoid embarrassment, but the professor reading out new students' names ruins that for him. Like many of his other family members, he is sorted into Gryffindor. He possesses a natural talent for Charms and Transfiguration and does well in there. His other courses are touch and go for a while. Early on, Waffle becomes enamored with Quidditch, looking at the players with stars in his eyes. He vows to make his house team one day. 
    1884-85| One of his uncles dies in the plague and the rest of his family moves to Irvingly. Cheesecake becomes ill as well and Waffle is quietly concerned for her until she recovers. Back at school, Waffle continues on his crusade to join the Quidditch team, but is waylaid by a broken arm (who knew jumping out of a tree for laughs was that bad of an idea?). When his arm is mended, he joins the Quidditch club. His marks continue to be a mixed bag. 
    1886| Cheesecake decides not to continue her education at Hogwarts, a decision Waffle can't understand at all. Upon entering his fourth year, Waffle is more determined than ever to make it onto the Quidditch team. He knows he ought to start thinking about OWL electives and his future, but he really can't be bothered. 
    chaotic neutral | snarky | mischievous | wildly irresponsible | not to be allowed near flammable materials, seriously | anarchic | opportunistic | disloyal | easily swayed by promises of chocolate | a lying liar who lies
